KARACHI: A 10-month old girl died at the door of Karachi's Civil Hospital after her father was allegedly denied entry by protocol staff due to the arrival of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari at the public medical facility.

The PPP chairman was there to inaugurate the newly built Benazir Bhutto Trauma Centre.

The victim’s father, while talking to media, blamed the VIP protocol given to the PPP chairman for his child’s death, as he was denied entry into the hospital.

Bisma's parents claimed that they remained stuck in the traffic jam due to the VIP movement before arriving at the hospital where the ailing girl was denied entry as Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was visiting the facility.

All the entry and exit points of the medical facility were closed and even ambulances were not allowed to enter the hospital as Bilawal, along with the Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah arrived to inaugurate the trauma centre.

Read: No. Bilawal's security is not more important than 10-month old Bisma's life

"First I came through bike, then on foot but was denied entry, in the meantime my baby girl died." said the victim's father.

The man claimed that he had always voted for PPP but was rewarded with the death of his child.

The senior PPP leader and Sindh education minister, Nisar Khuhro, while talking to media said that he is grieved if someone has died but "Bilawal's security is more important".

"Bilawal, who always had security concerns, is dearest to us and whatever we did it was in the better interest of the country. As the country's well being is linked to their security."

Khuhro added that since the chief minister was also coming, so the protocol was a necessity.

Bilawal orders inquiry

Soon after the news of Bisma’s death spread, the PPP chairman announced that he was deeply troubled by the death of the 10-month old child and has ordered an inquiry into the incident.

“Anguished over Bisma's death, I am personally inquiring into this heart breaking incident to ascertain what went wrong.” Bilawal tweeted from his official account.

Later the party’s media cell issued a statement suggesting that Bilawal has taken strong notice of the reports in electronic media about the death of a 10-month-old girl due to VVIP security provided during his visit to Civil Hospital, Karachi and ordered Sindh government for an impartial inquiry.

“The PPP chairman said that a transparent inquiry should be conducted into the reported death and complete findings should be made public. He said anyone found responsible must be taken to task.” read the statement.

Bilawal Bhutto's sister, Bakhtawar urged all to wait for the inquiry to be completed before jumping to conclusions while expressing grief over the incident.

In her Twitter message, Bakhtawar claimed that the PPP chairman did not order a shut down of hospital.

Dr. Said Ahmed Qureishi, Medical Superintendent, CHK, talking to APP regretted the trouble faced by citizens but dispelled the impression that this is due to presence of eminent personalities.

“It is mainly due to encroachments around the hospital that has restricted the mobility of the people, including, patients visiting CHK,” he said.

Dr. Qureishi said KMC authorities have been reportedly informed about the situation but no action was taken by them.

About the Bisma's death due to closed gates of the hospital, he in most categorical terms said no gate of CHK was closed.

Shame on this "PROTOCOL CULTURE/ VIP CULTURE"

Omar Khan Dec 23, 2015 06:50pm

Jiye Bhutto. They voted for him ... now they have to live with it.

AHA Dec 23, 2015 06:50pm

Criminal. Very, very sad. The status of ordinary Pakistanis is nothing more than slaves of their rulers.

Well Done politicians. Not the first time.

The value of life of the few ruling elite in our country matters no other life does. Shameful state of affairs.

Rizwan Yahaya Dec 23, 2015 06:53pm

Shame on you PPP

Karachite Dec 23, 2015 06:55pm

@mr kayne - They are NOT elites. They are pathetic soulless human beings, if even that. Don't worry, Pakistan's corrupt state will not charge and punish him with murder, but on the day of judgement these people will not escape.

MAK Dec 23, 2015 06:56pm

These vultures would never give up protocol culture. Judiciary must take sue motto action against these looters and corrupt mafia who always protect/hide their corrupt faces behind protocol.

Ebrahim ( Imran ) Lotia Dec 23, 2015 06:57pm

all the vip's are burden to the country.

Barenis Dec 23, 2015 06:57pm

The same protocal we witnessed today in Qayyum stadium Peshawar; where respectable citizens were humiliated in the name of security by army personel and police. We have been fed up with these culture where law abiding citizens are made subject to humiliation and ridicules.

DMDil Dec 23, 2015 06:58pm

Isnt almost time to replace this failure parties and replace them with young educated ones. MQM and PPP have given people pain and suffering and nothing else.

Tanweer Khan Dec 23, 2015 06:58pm

Two images above.

One a desperate father trying to save his ill young daughter. He will go back home and arrange her funeral.

Second is a bunch of clowns who will be VIP'ing for the rest of the day, seemly oblivious to the fact that they have caused the death of young child.

Shame on them !!!!!!!!!!!

Sumit Mazumdar Dec 23, 2015 06:59pm

This is the real life story for the common person all over South Asia. It does not even have to be a politician's visit that prevents admission of a common person to the hospital. It can just be a political procession, with angry mobs preventing patients' families from crossing the road. Or heart disease patients dying from heart attack due to the loud noise made outside his/her house by mobs celebrating religious festivals. Or ... Forget Bilawal. Entire societies have no civic sense.

zaheedmalik Dec 23, 2015 06:59pm

trail him for this criminal act

FutureWizard Dec 23, 2015 07:00pm

Ah, i'm father of 2 kids and feel pain. This stupid VIP culture is same in both countries. It must go. I can't even say RIP little angle....:|

Asif Kashmiri Dec 23, 2015 07:00pm

Pakistan - KEEP ON VOTING FOR THEM

Abdul Malik Dec 23, 2015 07:01pm

And he calls himself to be people's leader?

sukhera Dec 23, 2015 07:01pm

Bilawal pay to the parents few million dollars as Qasas.

Changez_Khan Dec 23, 2015 07:01pm

And PPP wanted to provide "Roti Kapra aor Makan' to poor people, they can't even provide treatment to a baby. What a disgusted party this is.

Atif Khan Dec 23, 2015 07:02pm

Mr. Bilawal; all you will ever do will be to order transparent inquiries and probes until the matter is forgotten. You don't need to order inquiries; we all know what caused this incident. Instead of your heart being broken; stay indoors or leave the country altogether. Pakistan is facing a number of problems as it is.

Muhammad Irfan Dec 23, 2015 07:02pm

This is our 'Awami' leader...!!!

noor Dec 23, 2015 07:03pm

We as a nation have been trying, God knows for how many years, to figure out what actually went wrong.

Strange Dec 23, 2015 07:03pm

who is Balawal to order enquiry. is he a elected MNA ?

Men of Crises Dec 23, 2015 07:03pm

Oh, They are the people of callous attitude.

abdul Dec 23, 2015 07:05pm

Yes thats true. we face these protocol difficulties we miss important works and students unable go on right time to school colleges .

Ijaz Dec 23, 2015 07:05pm

“Anguished over Bisma's death, I am personally inquiring into this heart breaking incident to ascertain what went wrong.”

Pretty obvious what went wrong. The culture of toadying to political masters and their security concerns has cost a child's life.

So much for the trauma centre!

Hilarious Dec 23, 2015 07:05pm

Sindh government is going to conduct an impartial inquiry on itself? Bilawal I think it's too early for an April fools joke!

ks Dec 23, 2015 07:06pm

your inquiry can't give a daughter to the parents. It does not matter it is sind or punjab or else where . VIP culture is everywhere.

Muzamil Hussain Dec 23, 2015 07:06pm

Why don't they stay at their homes for god's Sake? they are causing more harm and grief than any good when on streets. shame shame shame...

umar malik Dec 23, 2015 07:08pm

ordinary citizens are treated like slaves, lawless country, i came back to this country from europe full of hope but i was wrong, there is no hope. i am going back to law abiding europeans. this country has just become a land of corrupt and people who have morals like animals

XoF Dec 23, 2015 07:08pm

Tweet for your defense as much as you can.

Your system is a curse for Sindh and leads to regular tragedies and nuisance .

ashar Dec 23, 2015 07:10pm

Routine business for PPP leaders. so many died in Thar what is the difference if another died in karachi

Elya Dec 23, 2015 07:11pm

SHAME on them! Mr. Bhutto's hands are not clean. Howcome he didn't know the details of his protocol? What a shame!

Sameer Dec 23, 2015 07:11pm

What do you mean who is responsible? You are responsible. Did you ask them not to shut down the hospital as you visit?

Nasser Dec 23, 2015 07:11pm

Anyone who votes for PPP or PMLN has every right to do so. But everyone one of us should also know that all our actions have their consequences. What can be worse than death of your baby daughter, especially while waiting to get into the hospital when one of our leaders is being pampered? But because of these parties, the whole nation is suffering.

Tanweer Khan Dec 23, 2015 07:12pm

@Ijaz

'So much for the trauma centre!'

Well said sir.

Jon Dec 23, 2015 07:13pm

Keep on voting for these low life politicians. Keep filling the pockets of Zardari n Sharif. Pakistanis will never learn a lesson and they will continue to support the corrupt people.

BK Dec 23, 2015 07:19pm

Very sad news. Impartial inquiry is only eye wash, and low level staff may be made scapegoat. This high profile people can't live without VVVIP treatment.

Daanish Dec 23, 2015 07:20pm

What Bilawal has do with inauguration. Does he paid the money?

CM SHAH must resign!!

Khan I. (Can) Dec 23, 2015 07:22pm

Inquiry for what, we all know what happened and it happens all the times when Nawaz Sharif family, Zardari family, Chief Ministers, chief Justices or even Raheel Sharif travels. Nothing will happen and people will forget abou it soon.

Uzair baloch Dec 23, 2015 07:23pm

Muhammad Qureshi Dec 23, 2015 07:25pm

all we do, the normal citizens, is complain about the VIP protocol and treatment, for once just stand up people of pakistan...we are majority not minority...JUST STAND UP!!

Rohail Dec 23, 2015 07:26pm

FIR shall be written against Bilawal.

Bharat Dec 23, 2015 07:26pm

What went WRONG? What is wrong is this VIP & VVIP Culture, a left over from Colonial Days of sub-continent. Get rid of this culture and be treated like another citizen.

Karachian Dec 23, 2015 07:28pm

Why are we surprised on these innocent deaths, we have become a dead nation!

qamer Dec 23, 2015 07:29pm

Inhuman democrats, God where are you

Asmat Ullah Dec 23, 2015 07:29pm

No words to describe for these shameless souls. How can they even sleep and eat after such incidents. No words to describe the hate I have for Pakistani elite.

Abid Pervez Dec 23, 2015 07:31pm

Even if it was due to encroachments , PPP government is responsible one one hand terrorists are killing our children and on the other hand these Politicians and their kids are doing the same.

Sonny Afridi Dec 23, 2015 07:31pm

Not even in power yes and already ordering meaningless "inquiries". This kid I hope has no chance. PPP feudal self endowed looters and their VIP culture. This infuriates me!

Guest66 Dec 23, 2015 07:32pm

Pakistan's security lies with the security of its people and People alone , Certainly Not its so called pseudo leaders or people appointed as leaders due to their birth right . The death of a toddler is the outcome of just one such so called security of pseudo leader . this guy born with a silver spoon in his mouth , least it can do to give blood money to the grieved parents , who child might have been alive if the father was allowed to take her into the Emergency Ward .

divergence Dec 23, 2015 07:33pm

That's the true face of democracy in Pakistan, and every political party is guilty of it.

Saeed Masood Dec 23, 2015 07:35pm

Sad very sad...look all the things PPP is doing... and people of Sindh are sitting quietly watching the crime going on...someone will have to step forward to stop the rule of these criminals...Hopefuly it is the law, otherwise it will have to be the army...

Long View Dec 23, 2015 07:37pm

Tragic incident which could have been avoided - but these rulers - improve security for all and you too will benefit from it.

HIRA Dec 23, 2015 07:37pm

Don't know why they come to inaugurate places they havnt put a paisa into the building. They will never use the hospital, beause if these people get sick, they'll be catching the next flight to Dubai or England.

Bonkers Dec 23, 2015 07:39pm

First and Foremost, in what capacity is Bilawal entitled to an official "Protocol". He doesn't hold an official office of the Government, he is not a member of the any Parliament either. The poor tax paying citizens of Pakistan are footing the bill for his activities. This 20 some year old kid has not accomplished a single thing in his life. His only qualification is that he is born to Benazir. What a shame......

Tsriq Dec 23, 2015 07:40pm

It's a criminal act and should be prosecuted

Amar Dec 23, 2015 07:41pm

It looks that the lives of normal human being who is in desperate need of medical assistance, has not value against some corrupt criminals, and big vaderas, who just come for show off, and bring their popularity at high esteem. Even though Bilwal might not have issued orders directly, but indirectly, he might have told to have every security available for him, regardless if the patients at the CHK die or what. What a shame. Now conducting inquiry what will happen, the innocent girl who died will not come back. Think before you act. How you going or your PPP party will serve the country. You have all negative things with you, and around you. This girl BISMA should Rest in Peace, and also God please give her family the strength and courage, and patience to bear this loss.

Frankenstein Dec 23, 2015 07:43pm

To all those criticising our politicians SHUT YOUR MOUTH. we have elected them and we will elect them again and I support VIP culture, Corruption and every unlawful act as I voted for them. I take the responsibility an ask for forgiveness from the victims family member because those who did this I was the one who selected them. I am corrupt I am lawless and I have no courage to face this bitter truth. They represent me and all those who voted for them and will vote for them again no matter how many of Bismahs die , no matter how many children will die due to hunger or lack of ventilaters . I will vote for them no matter what they do becuase I am one of them

Rohail Dec 23, 2015 07:45pm

FIR shall be written against Bilawal.

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 07:45pm

Why are hospital wings named after political personalities. Pakistan will never change unless the people make it change . Shame on you the people for allowing this to happen. We don't need these politicians to come to hospitals to score brownie points.

ahmad Dec 23, 2015 07:46pm

this is insane. At hospitals, the patients are the VIPs. Everybody else is secondary. How come our leaders don't know that. They close down roads, airports, whole cities for their protocol. Now hospitals!!!!!! Really.

Vivek Amar Dec 23, 2015 07:48pm

Solidarity with the common man of Pakistan. We Indians too are a victim of VIP culture.

Citizen Dec 23, 2015 07:48pm

Democracy is for the people.... In Pakisthan democracy is only for rich , affluent land lords and industrial tycoons only , not for common man!

javed qamer Dec 23, 2015 07:49pm

What does strong notice mean. I have heard this term so many times that it makes me sick. Is he a minister or PM. Send him to the lockup for causing the death of baby.

The Observer Dec 23, 2015 07:49pm

and they say let inquiry be completed as if inquiry will be free and fair. People are dying but Zinda hai Bhutto zinda hai.

Black Warrant Dec 23, 2015 07:50pm

Supreme Court of Pakistan should take suo moto against culture of VIP protocol in this country and penalize this feudal brat who for his political gains make lives of common people miserable.

Igee Dec 23, 2015 07:51pm

Wow Dr. Qureshi, you gave the outcome of the transparent inquiry. That is "ENCROACHMENT". Remember, the father has reached the gate of the hospital before the death of his baby.

The Observer Dec 23, 2015 07:51pm

@Rohail than what? an investigation will be held and no one or some unforeseen circumstances would be held responsible

AIZ Dec 23, 2015 07:52pm

Bilawal and Qaim ali shah are really VIPs .......... Case should be against Bilawal and CM.....

Jason Dec 23, 2015 07:53pm

We all will have to answer eventually for what we used to do.

Asjad Bukhari Dec 23, 2015 07:54pm

It reminds me of the last days of BB’s first and second government. In coming days there will be more media hypes against PPP until establishment will remove them from power or they compromise their powers. Having said that it doesn’t mean PPP is not guilty of anything.

Rahul Dec 23, 2015 07:58pm

In Pakistan the VIP culture and corrupt ministers are not the only ones to blame. The janta (public) is equally to be blamed. Why are they just lying down and doing nothing about it? Why are they not on the streets complaining in front of the Bhutto house? Because who cares? Just like everything else this too shall be forgotten. If this goes on Pakistan will continue to remain like this. We Indians have started realizing the power of janta and have begun flexing our muscles. Just two days ago the Indian public fought against the release of the juvenile rapist. Although unfortunately he was released but the very next day a law was passed in the parliament reducing the juvenile age from 18 to 16 meaning any 16 year old who commits a crime will be tried as an adult, compared to 18 years which was earlier. Don't just sit at homes commenting on newspaper websites. Get up and do something. Just like the French revolution let there be a Pakistani revolution against the tyrants.

tata Dec 23, 2015 08:01pm

@Changez_Khan roti, kapra or makan does not include healthcare!

Baaligh Dec 23, 2015 08:01pm

"Dr. Said Ahmed Qureishi, Medical Superintendent, CHK, talking to APP regretted the trouble faced by citizens but dispelled the impression that this is due to presence of eminent personalities. About the Bisma's death due to closed gates of the hospital, he in most categorical terms said no gate of CHK was closed." This above statement from MS CHK is most shameful and adds insult to injury of the girl's parents and also the entire nation.

Asim Dec 23, 2015 08:03pm

The strong will live and the weak shall die.This one sentence covers history, evolution and life itself.

Mahmood Dec 23, 2015 08:05pm

I have utter contempt for all those who caused the little girl's death and pain and anguish to her parents.

Rest assured, Karma has a visiting when we least expect it...and those who caused this tragic will get their comeuppance.

Hamaad Dec 23, 2015 08:05pm

Any inquiry if and when completed will never be presented to the public and will never be fair. So please do not tweet unnecessarily. This news will soon become old and life will move on as usual. Nothing will ever change.

zaheer Dec 23, 2015 08:06pm

"The man claimed that he had always voted for PPP "???? Ask why he voted to PPP, what PPP did for him in past?

Taimoor Malik Dec 23, 2015 08:06pm

shame shame !!!

Ammar Dec 23, 2015 08:07pm

This is pathetic!!

Nadeem Dec 23, 2015 08:11pm

No shame...The end to this cruelty is on the way, hopefully soon..

Noni Dec 23, 2015 08:12pm

What inquiry is he asking for ? Can't he read the newspaper ?????

Whatever Dec 23, 2015 08:12pm

Look at the crocodile tears of these politicians. Digusting !

sr khan Dec 23, 2015 08:12pm

Butto zinda hay

wshaikh Dec 23, 2015 08:14pm

very very sad and tragic. We must abolish VIP culture of Protocol.

Skeptic Dec 23, 2015 08:15pm

If this kid has any conscience, he will apologize to the family and compensate them adequately. Though I highly doubt this will happen!

An apple doesn't fall from the tree after all.

Ram Dec 23, 2015 08:15pm

very sad guys, whom are going to blame protocol Bhutto or the individual who denied the access you will very know.

Naeem Dec 23, 2015 08:15pm

Sick face of Pakistani VIP culture. Bring on a revolution to get rid of these people and their cronies. They only stay in Pakistan to milk the people and there are enough stupid people in Pakistan to support them.

Ahmed Dec 23, 2015 08:16pm

Shame on these leaders who are saying that safety protocol is more important than a life of a child. Administration should have made special provision to let father enter in to the hospital for treatment of her daughter. These politicians strongly believe that their lives are more important than others.

Irfan Baloch Dec 23, 2015 08:17pm

rest in peace to the poor girl her life is lost to the VIP protocol

our Democratic rulers are no better than the terrorists.

Atif Dec 23, 2015 08:18pm

Nisar khuhro should be removed for any public posts for his comments.

Adeel Dec 23, 2015 08:20pm

The senior PPP leader and Sindh education minister, Nisar Khuhro, while talking to media said that he is grieved if someone has died but "Bilawal's security is more important".

This sums it all...."We are sorry for your loss, but we don't care"

Life Dec 23, 2015 08:23pm

Worst decision by the protocol officer.

Shah Dec 23, 2015 08:24pm

Nisar Khuhro, while talking to media said that he is grieved if someone has died but "Bilawal's security is more important". NISAR KHORO, Is this trauma center/hospital built with the Bilawal's money?

Shoaib Arif Dec 23, 2015 08:27pm

Reading the sind education ministers remarks gives me great anguish and also infuriates me. But it is the fault of the people since they are the ones who voted for people like him. Now, citizens, enjoy your choice.

Syed Ahmed, Canada Dec 23, 2015 08:30pm

Bilawal's protocol officer must be charged for murder.

Mustafa R. Dec 23, 2015 08:31pm

As Benazir said, Democracy is the best revenge, but against who? Bilawal Zardari has now made it clear.

Syed Dec 23, 2015 08:32pm

Shocked to read this: The senior PPP leader and Sindh education minister, Nisar Khuhro, while talking to media said that he is grieved if someone has died but "Bilawal's security is more important".

NASR Dec 23, 2015 08:33pm

Another unthinkable in our country only round the most important hospital. "It is mainly due to encroachments around the hospital that has restricted the mobility of the people, including, patients visiting CHK,”

Mustafa R. Dec 23, 2015 08:33pm

To me this little girl is the 'Shaheed Mohtarma'

Khurrum Ahmed Dec 23, 2015 08:35pm

I pray that the parents of the dead girl get justice. But it is very clear from Mr. Nisar Khuhro's statements that he has let power get to his head and does not serve the people but just manages up.

rehaan Dec 23, 2015 08:35pm

Since when Bilawal has become VIP?

Shujaat Dec 23, 2015 08:35pm

Stop waiting your time by giving UR strong worded statements,We as a Nation should be ashamed for having such leaders in office.I live aboard and am sorry to say that at times I feel hesitant to say that I am from Pakistan.For Godsake wake up.

Khanra Dec 23, 2015 08:36pm

Khusro said bilawals security is more important!!! Rubbing salt into wounds. Media should keep pressure on PPP for such terrible incident and response!!

rehaan Dec 23, 2015 08:36pm

The senior PPP leader and Sindh education minister, Nisar Khuhro, while talking to media said that he is grieved if someone has died but "Bilawal's security is more important".

"Bilawal, who always had security concerns, is dearest to us and whatever we did it was in the better interest of the country. As the country's well being is linked to their security."

Khuhro added that since the chief minister was also coming, so the protocol was a necessity.

This statement clearly shows the arrogance of PPP!!!

Jamila K Dec 23, 2015 08:37pm

Extremely shameful incident.

khurram Dec 23, 2015 08:38pm

Bilawal pkease compensate with atleast a billion to the suffering family.

Pakistan!WhereAreYou? Dec 23, 2015 08:41pm

Why too much strict protocols for an unofficial undesignated person? Bilawal and others must be treated as 'aam aadmi'. Nisar Khuro, If the cost of his well being is a citizen's life than we don't need him in our motherland at all.

Haroon Dec 23, 2015 08:42pm

"Anguished over Bisma's death. Am personally inquiring into this heart breaking incident to ascertain what went wrong." Come off it, you know exactly what went wrong. This VIP culture is a cancer in Pakistan.

Sixer from Chakwal Dec 23, 2015 08:42pm

This newly opened Benazir Bhutto Trauma center has given first Trauma to Bisma's family. Jiye Bhutto

Mustafa R. Dec 23, 2015 08:42pm

@Adeel;

"We are sorry for your loss, but we don't care"

Nisar Khoro is only half right, I don't think he is even sorry.

Tariq Dec 23, 2015 08:43pm

@mr kayne It is shameful but True to its core. Thanks

Simple man Dec 23, 2015 08:43pm

@sukhera so true! That is what will happen 99% of the time

Hassan Dec 23, 2015 08:44pm

Lets try and blame IK on this tragic tragic tragedy.

khan Dec 23, 2015 08:44pm

NO Nisar Khurro.

The well being of Pakistan is NOT linked to the well being of the Zardari family.

Pakistan is much greater than that.

Kamran Dec 23, 2015 08:45pm

What hurt me most was khuhro statement. He should be disqualified from all public offices. People of sindhs should wake up now and get out off PPP fobia forever. This is not democracy. This is shame ssystem.

AHA Dec 23, 2015 08:46pm

Nisar Khuhro, while talking to media said that he is grieved if someone has died but "Bilawal's security is more important".

Such a shameless arrogance. The ordinary Pakistanis are so powerless.

Mustafa R. Dec 23, 2015 08:47pm

@rehaan;

'Since when Bilawal has become VIP?'

He was born a VIP.

AJ Dec 23, 2015 08:51pm

That's to be expected. According to PPP philosophy "democracy is the best revenge". Unfortunately the people of Pakistan are the targets of their revenge.

angry citizen Dec 23, 2015 08:52pm

now the poor parents of a kid will be threatened and pressurized by sindh government and sindh police

Sarwar, USA. Dec 23, 2015 08:53pm

Democracy is the best revenge... you vote for them they will kill you. wake up Pakistan...

Sami-khi Dec 23, 2015 08:55pm

Rangers were present on the way of protocol. Why rangers took step forward to get the man with his little one to the hospital. Why rangers stayed away from that situation.

Shery Hyder Dec 23, 2015 08:55pm

Can there be an end to security protocols for VIPs infringing upon citizens'right to free movement in public areas? Is there anyone listening to ? Please have some mercy on us

Syed Dec 23, 2015 08:55pm

Inquiry, Committee, commission. People of Pakistan shouldn't cry, sorry to say this, with very heart broken. Every one has children. But we elect these peoples even after knowing their character. Until these 2 main stream parties are in ruling, forget about justice or any system in Pakistan!

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 08:57pm

@Rahul well said my Indian friend.. Pakistan's problem is that the whole population is sleeping ... Nothing will change unless the self centered people wake up and smell the coffee.

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 08:57pm

@Omar Khan ..... Where's the blood money?

Satyam Vada Dec 23, 2015 08:58pm

Very sad. I just hope there is a law to punish people responsible for this fatal incident.

A. Mangal Dec 23, 2015 09:02pm

Saving human life is more important than healthy crown prince visiting hospital! Him and his entire entourage needs to be held responsible;

Qaisar Dec 23, 2015 09:04pm

in which official capacity is he inaugurating the facility on which public money has been spent.

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 09:04pm

@zaheedmalik .... He did not even say, "Sorry".

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 09:06pm

@DMDil ..... People have to found and organize a new party. Obviously the Pakistan Peoples Party is no longer the party of the people.

Danish Dec 23, 2015 09:07pm

Register FIR and refer case to Military Cour

Imran Ahmed Dec 23, 2015 09:10pm

What makes Bilawal's or any of these arrogant so called VIP s lives more important than the life of a little girl?

Skeptic Dec 23, 2015 09:10pm

Shameless. And they call it Pakistan 'Peoples' Party!

People only matter when the Party wants their votes. And it cares even less for Pakistan as a nation!

Mian Dec 23, 2015 09:11pm

Royal Democracy. It is simply shameful a poor life is gone because of these idiots . Where are our courts??? please give this poor girl Justice and put these elites in jail.

Inherent-right Dec 23, 2015 09:14pm

Guys like Bilawal or Qaim Ali Shah never visits Civil Hospital Karachi,there favorite places are Dubai/London even to check their toothache. BB trauma Center is built by people's money,not by personal funding of Bilawal,the roads around this hospital are broken,garbage seen everywhere,with stink outside and even inside,if inauguration with ceremony was imperative Mr Ehdi or Mr Saylani could have done it,but the cronies like Nisar Khuro & others may have arranged this occasion with unwarranted extra ordinary security excuses resulted in poor baby death. The security staff the hospital gate is responsible,who was unhumane, besides the officer who ordered the such security wherein even patients were barred to go in for treatment ,matter of shame. Bilawal has ordered an inquiry but the baby would not come back,and Nisar Khuro is not correct when he defended Bilawal that "Bilawal security is more important" Nisar Khuro should keep quite rather than saying so.Sad,Shameful.Now compensate plz.

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 09:16pm

@ks ..... His life is more important to the nation. That says it all.

Ghaznavi Dec 23, 2015 09:18pm

Condolences to the family. Wondering if we need this type of democracy !!

Saad Dec 23, 2015 09:19pm

This is shameful...a little girl dies out of criminal negligence and this man (Khuro) has the audacity to say Bilawal is more important.

sandeep Dec 23, 2015 09:20pm

My heart goes to the departed soul..i am sure she is at better place now..i cam imagine the pain with which whole family must be going through but I must say people should stand together and speak together as tomorrow it can be one of you struggling to get justice

Someone Dec 23, 2015 09:20pm

PPP is known for insane VIP protocols, hope they fade away into oblivion.

gerry dcunha Dec 23, 2015 09:21pm

Our people who vote for them are shameless and have not learned lessons since 68 years - they will keep on suffering at the hands of these politicians under the slogan ' Geea ?bhutto'

Adnan Mazher Khan Dec 23, 2015 09:22pm

Tears, anxiety, anguish, pain, death and sorrow for poor family. Nothing will happen nor security protocols will ever change. Keep going Bilawal, this nation deserves you.

Dinesh Dec 23, 2015 09:28pm

On this front India is the same

Law Student Dec 23, 2015 09:30pm

Court has to take suo-moto on this Murder ...

Umar Dec 23, 2015 09:31pm

General Raheel can you do something?

Saadahgul Khan Dec 23, 2015 09:31pm

I wonder how Mr. Nisar Khuro would feel if it was his baby's life versus security protocol of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 09:36pm

@Guest66 .... He is looking into it.

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 09:39pm

@divergence ..... Every politician wants royal treatment.

Talha Dec 23, 2015 09:41pm

The father should not remain quite and should speak against PPP. Failure to do so would not only be injustice towards his own daughter but also to all those who have or God forbid would suffer from the VIP culture.

Abdulla Hussain Dec 23, 2015 09:41pm

Shame on such protocol, shame & disgraceful act, a baby from Lyari dies on the road before reaching hospital. What type of people are they.

Abdulla Hussain Dec 23, 2015 09:43pm

Why this guy has to come so often, better stay with his father abroad.

najeeb Dec 23, 2015 09:44pm

@Omar Khan No Karachi voted for MQM ,not ppp

M. Malik Dec 23, 2015 09:47pm

If the party has any redeeming values, it would urge the hospital to rename the wing in the name of the deceased girl. That would be an apt memorial for her.

Ali Dec 23, 2015 09:48pm

Our leaders are our reflection and since majority of us are like our leaders, we deserve this.

ali Dec 23, 2015 09:50pm

Bilawal should not be treated as a VIP he is holding no official position.This is wadera mentality which Bilawal and Sindh cabinet is following. This needs to stop.They talk about betterment for the poor people but thy treat them as dirt.

Exlim Dec 23, 2015 09:53pm

What can one expect from moronic leaders and individuals like Nisar Khuro saying that the Bhuttos and Qaim Ali Shah are more important than any poor sick citizen.

Hopefully, Bilawal will do something sensible and rid the party of incompetents.

Zack Dec 23, 2015 09:56pm

This is absurd!! The ordinary people's lives don't matter. Both the parties are same except Musharraf who truly cares for the people. Bring Musharraf back!! Sooner the Better..

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 09:58pm

@Black Warrant ...... If I were that child's father my heart would be broken.

SABZ Dec 23, 2015 10:00pm

the responsibility sits with billawal bhutto.... he is responsible for the death of this baby.... as general it falls to him to let his people know what is acceptable.....not just that cant his people use their own inititive and let the poor guy through with his child.... what kind of world is this when they let the innocent die

Khwarezmi Dec 23, 2015 10:01pm

Shameful. Just shameful!! There are no VIPs in Islam. Bring all VIPs down to earth - because it is just a matter of time before all VIPs are IN the earth under everyones feet!!

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 10:03pm

@Asjad Bukhari ..... These VIPs have tight security because they know there are people who would like to kill them. The more guilty they feel the tighter the security.

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 10:08pm

@Rahul ..... Bilawal thinks the people love him. Louis XVI thought the people loved him. The elite are out of touch with reality.

Sajjad Dec 23, 2015 10:09pm

Bilawal should stay indoors. Poor and Illiterate people of sindh will vote for PPP anyways, he does not need to create chaos in metropolitan and specially in karachi where PPP is not popular at all.

P.S : I am a sindhi.

parveez Dec 23, 2015 10:09pm

VIP culture is a big hurdle in the development of Pakistan

Yaar Nawab Dec 23, 2015 10:13pm

The core question is - in what capacity he had all the protocol? He is not elected MP so why tax payers' money was being spent.

KZ Dec 23, 2015 10:16pm

I am still unable to understand how these family members of formers and current office bearers get the rights of same or higher protocol then their parents/kids !!If they need so much protocol and fool proof security in Pakistan then its better to stay in UAE/Saudia/UK

Zaheer Dec 23, 2015 10:17pm

We are all responsible for the death of innocent kid as we make these politicians untouchables and above the law. The growing culture in the country and our silence on it is a biggest tragedy every time we read a story like a woman give birth in a rickshaw, man died in ambulance etc due to the VVIP movement but we remained tight lipped over this inhuman behaviour of our elite and VVIP class. Shame on us accepting this culture and do not have courage to eliminate this worst type of hypocrisy by our rulers and others who always make us fool by chanting slogans like Roti Kapra Makan, Tabdeeli or Qarz utaro Mulk Sanwaro.

Rome cruiser Dec 23, 2015 10:17pm

DISGRACEFUL! The inquery is just to buy time and come up with an excuse. A family have lost their 10 month old child.

Pakistani Dec 23, 2015 10:18pm

I hate ppp

Cyrus Dec 23, 2015 10:24pm

@Syed ..... Biliwal was secure enough that the little girl and her father could have been admitted to the emergency room.

Shahid Dec 23, 2015 10:33pm

The VIP culture is not limited to politicians only. After the PM oath taking ceremony in 2013, not even the ministers were allowed to leave until Gen Kayani was safely out of Islamabad. If these folks cannot travel without disrupting the life of ordinary people, they should have mercy on us and don't go to public places/events.

Miqbal Dec 23, 2015 10:36pm

Shame shame shame so called ppp

Miqbal Dec 23, 2015 10:37pm

FIR. Shall be made against the so called PPP crimals

Sid Dec 23, 2015 10:42pm

A little girl was denied her life in the name of security. Now everyone is covering up, blame it on the encroachments or security protocol but a precious life was lost. No enquiries is going to bring her back and the only protocol that should have been placed in the hospital was to help patients get treated despite VVIP visit.

Mustafa R. Dec 23, 2015 10:46pm

@Muhammad Qureshi;

'for once just stand up people of Pakistan.'

First understand then stand, otherwise we would be a strong and random force whose net result is zero.

Siddiqui Dec 23, 2015 10:48pm

Tell me one good thing you and your family have done for the people of this country? You have enough money to live a rich life anywhere, why do you keep coming back to increase the misery of these people? why?

NAW Dec 23, 2015 10:53pm

This man (Khuhro) has no heart. He has no business holding public office. Events today have shown that Bilawal Zardari is not in the better interest of this country. Not if an innocent baby's death is considered insignificant by Khuhro/PPP mentality.

Huz Dec 23, 2015 10:55pm

Shame on Bilawal

Danish Mehmood Dec 23, 2015 10:57pm

Bilawal is following the footsteps of his father. when Mr Asif Zardari was President, a girl in Queta gave birth to her baby in rikshaw as she could not reach hospital because of protocol route for the President.

NS Dec 23, 2015 10:58pm

It seems Nisar Khuhro is on drugs or has a mental breakdown. He needs to see a psychiatrist. Having said that I will reiterate agains:

Strengthen laws and their enforcement. Depoliticize police so it protects law and order instead of rich and powerful. Once police start respecting the citizens such incidents will be eliminated.

Sheraz Dec 23, 2015 11:00pm

This little girl emergency should have been granted hospital access. Bilawal security could have been handled differently by may be postponing or cancelling his trip. I am sure he agrees as he is enquiring into it. So sorry for the poor girl family.

Munz Dec 23, 2015 11:03pm

Now please add a 10-month old kid's murder to the long list of murdered people's names by your family you pathetic excuse of human beings!

uk-expat Dec 23, 2015 11:11pm

If I was the child's father ,I would take my child to Bilawal house and ask Why ?

imran Dec 23, 2015 11:19pm

Rangers please take action.

Shaukat Ali Khan Dec 23, 2015 11:23pm

Why illegitimate protocol for a non government person?

Ashraf Quli Dec 23, 2015 11:32pm

I have just now done a quick review of the comments here by quite a number of readers, and I note tremendous emotional outburst, which is natural in view of the baby girl's death as a result of the mentioned protocol/security. This not the first time this has happened. Many patients have died in the past on the way to hospitals due to closure of roads by police/security personnel. Even some pregnant women have delivered babies inside vehicles and rickshaws on their way to hospitals.

This custom of providing protocol for the political leaders and other big wigs is not going to end. Hence, some concerned public organisation should approach the government and obtain a ruling that the security personnel be directed to let a vehicle (ambulance), carrying a patient, go through to the hospital after thoroughly checking the vehicle and person/s inside it.

Is Belawal any minister, or an MNA or MPA so to be using state protocol? 2. Did he build that trauma centre with his personal fund?

Tariq Dec 23, 2015 11:37pm

Shame on these politicians and VIP culture. We have to get rid of family run (PPP and PMLN) politics. Wake up Pakistan these people have no heart for ordinary Pakistani. Look at the statement given by Sindh Minsiter- shameful!

rehan ali Dec 23, 2015 11:44pm

There is no point shaming these people. They are cold hearted and even find excuses in their actions like nisar khuro defended the protocol need. Nothing and nothing is more important than than life of a human being, period let alone the security protocol of a playboy. The rest of the exercise is known to us all. PPP/ bilwawal bhutto will take strong notice of the incident, direct Sindh govt to take every action to punish the culprit. but wait who is the culprit here.

Khayaam Dec 23, 2015 11:50pm

Ask Nisar Khuro if he would ever sacrifice the life of his daughter if she needed urgent treatment because "Bilawal's security is more important" as for "putting pitch forks down ..." The sooner they are taken up against such abject and rampant privilege and corruption the better.

Daood Dec 23, 2015 11:52pm

"what went wrong" people like you is what is wrong in this country.

Secular Pathan Dec 23, 2015 11:55pm

This is unacceptable, VIP culture is killing us. This is another form of violating state sovereignty and constitution of Pakistan.

Article 15: The constitution guarantees freedom of movement to all Pakistanis across Pakistan. Article 9: No person shall be deprived of life or liberty save in accordance with law. Article 25(1): All citizens are equal before law and are entitled to equal protection of law. Article 25(3): Nothing in this Article shall prevent the State from making any special provision for the protection of women and children. Article 26(1): In respect of access to places of public entertainment or resort not intended for religious purposes only, there shall be no discrimination against any citizen on the ground only of race, religion, caste, sex, residence or place of birth. Article 26(2): Nothing in clause (1) shall prevent the State from making any special provision for women and children.

divergence Dec 23, 2015 11:56pm

@Cyrus Why should someone else pay for it? Apparently, all of us are humans, so are these politicians. It is about time we quit this apologetic attitude for the old, rustic traditions which are, in fact, responsible for the sorry state of people.

Pak Democrats Dec 24, 2015 12:01am

No one has any interest in the baby girl's death except doing politics and make someone happy .. all politicians , Judges & Generals (R.A) enjoys the same protocol but I wonder these accidents always happens with Bhuttos or media only sell these

Bhutto has died in Punjab but fe days ago 8+ children died in a lahore hospital due to unavailability of medical facility and similar event happened in pishawar/kpk hospital but nothing happened in media except a ticker .... 'Zindaa hay Bhutto' is most annoying and painful slogan for some powerful sections of the country ... rest is not a secret

view Dec 24, 2015 12:11am

A JIT should be formed for the investigation and BBZ and QIS being responsible persons of Sindh Government, must undergo investigation in terror court. To avoid such incident in future, AAZ, BBZ should stay out of country. However, their corruption lion share to be transferred to their accounts regularly. Alas people of sindh even to select AAZ party to rule.

SachBol Dec 24, 2015 12:11am

Well, we voted for these Feudal VIPs, so what's the complain????

Qadir Baloch Dec 24, 2015 12:14am

This is why I only trust the military, not these civilian waderas/looters

Ammar-khi Dec 24, 2015 12:22am

Politicians and rulers should be banned to visit (show off) public places and institutions immediately.

Jimmyali Dec 24, 2015 12:23am

Shame on us that we allow such things to happen and don't even protest. it could be any of us or it can be one of us GOD for bid.

A. Mangal Dec 24, 2015 12:24am

@tata. It does matter to human as well as animals for sheer information!

Laeeq,NY Dec 24, 2015 01:17am

Wish he was in the United States to face multimillion lawsuit. Get rid off the VIP culture. Only way to move forward. What imprtance he has for the country?

A silent citizen Dec 24, 2015 01:20am

Life of rich is much more important than the poor in Pakistan.None is there to take responsibility of a dead kid,when BB died whole country was turned into ashes because she was billionaire's daughter-billionaire,the rhetoric will roar over moon as usual afterwards silence will be observed.That's it,case is closed.VVIP would ripe the heart of our poor like this.Zindabad.

Tariq khan Dec 24, 2015 01:38am

@Pak Democrats shame on PPP

sukhera Dec 24, 2015 01:40am

Why we need an inquiry of this incident. The PPP leader acknowledge the security protocol. Look what he said"Bilawal, who always had security concerns, is dearest to us and whatever we did it was in the better interest of the country. As the country's well being is linked to their security." . Now why wee need an inquiry, Pay the parents of the girl few million dollars as a Qasas an closed teh d a promise not to do it again. The people who going harm Bilawal are not going to come with a very sick 10 year old.hey could have closed teh part where he was visiting but not the emergency area.

Faheem maitla Dec 24, 2015 01:43am

The same protocal we witnessed today in Qayyum stadium Peshawar; where respectable citizens were humiliated in the name of security by army personel and police. We have been fed up with these culture where law abiding citizens are made subject to humiliation and ridicules.

KA Dec 24, 2015 01:46am

VIP culture is prevalent in India and Pakistan. The basic rights of the citizens are violated openly and leadership show no remorse. Let me assure you it cannot and will not happen In the U.S.

sfoman Dec 24, 2015 02:06am

I say shame on the people of Pakistan for allowing evils like Bilawal Zardari and Sharifs to live and loot this country for decades and still continue to vote for them

Debra Dec 24, 2015 02:06am

When will elected "leaders" world- wide realize that they were elected to SERVE not to be royalty. (My sincerest condolence to that family.)

I guess they will only realize when we make it CLEAR.

mehdi Dec 24, 2015 02:23am

i just don't know these people sleep at night after getting the curse of so many people..they must not forget that someone more powerfull than them is always watching and he is the greatest judger

Ansir.khan Dec 24, 2015 02:33am

Just an indictipn of what is to come if the people of Pakistan decide to ever vote him into power.

Atlantic Dec 24, 2015 02:33am

Bilalwal GO AWAY - we don't need you in this country!

Spooky Dec 24, 2015 02:36am

The question is would BISMA be in her mother lap today? May be. She was at the right place but at the BILAWAL made wrong time. Now who is responsible? The hospital admin or high profile visitor. Some one has to be booked in for this negligence. If any VIP visitor or admin is found to be responsible for this degree murder they must be severely punish by the court of law. Lost of life is more important then inauguration. Hospitals are not for political score they are for sick people.

JJ's Dec 24, 2015 02:55am

'what went wrong'....are you so naive Bilawal???

Najam Dec 24, 2015 03:10am

Another low for PPP.

Syed Amir Ahmed Dec 24, 2015 03:19am

Pakistan should be declared as a country for Rich or so called VIP people so that a common men don't even think about moving forward with constructive way. Most of the Pakistani are indirectly slave to the rich or VIP. Please stop this double standard of being Muslim country as nothing being done according to the teaching of Islam.

dania Dec 24, 2015 03:19am

We want dismissal of those people from service, who consider a leader's blood holier than the public. No apologies accepted!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AG Dec 24, 2015 03:42am

Wah "his security is more important to us" bravo. We really deserve these rulers, we really do it is all our fault, something is definitely wrong with us.

AG Dec 24, 2015 03:49am

and inquiry result will be a "sazish" I can bet!!

AG Dec 24, 2015 03:50am

@Pak Democrats here you go again

HKB Dec 24, 2015 04:12am

The Trauma center is aptly named - that is all this party and this family have given us! One request to Mr. Zardari Jr. - since u & your CM have such security concerns in Pakistan, plz leave!!

Hashim Dec 24, 2015 04:20am

The statement of Nisar Khuhro puts it all in perspective, and just gives others an insight into the mindset of these elites. The security of Bilawal is more important and in the interest of the country. 190 million other souls are just here to serve these clowns and their lives really don't matter.

I just cannot fathom the fact that the interest of this country is linked to someone who has not even been in this country for the majority of his life. Something like a French Revolution is waiting in the wings for this land.

Mohammad Khan Dec 24, 2015 04:40am

In this day and age VIPs do not need to go to different places for inaugurations. It can be done through video link. Problem solved.

saz Dec 24, 2015 04:43am

There is serious lack of insight at hospital administration how would they deal with emergency patients during visit of politicians or hierarchy while maintaining security check. They managed security check but failed in providing necessay care in timely fashion. If it is impossible to provide both then hierarchy should not be invited for inauguration ceremonies.

Lighthouse Dec 24, 2015 05:48am

I am surprised to see Rangers providing policing for an illegal traffic stop!! Rangers are not suppose to support any illegal activity. We know police is politicized but why Rangers were there to stop people going to Hospital.

Rohail Dec 24, 2015 06:02am

Let's see what price the father of young daughter put on her unnatural death. The young one yet to see many happy days in her life. I am not even expecting the poor father fight against these powerful people who pretending to be stronger than Ferro. Beware of punishment of Almighty.

ZULFIQAR Dec 24, 2015 06:07am

Thanks for Media Bringing right point infront of People but what will be Result People will Forget & Than another Incident & Than another I think if Administration as Democrase is failed & I do not think So Pakistan Society is Enough Mature to choose Right Leaders In Countries were leaders Lives Posh Life & Poor Voters & Citizen cannot get Their Right So where is Constitution Civil Society Should Support Person who is being Suffered & Let put Case in Front of Court & Delete all Portocol I Remember similar incident happened in PPP Govt 4 years back by giving Birth to child in Ricksaw & Zardari announced Money

So Money Can Buy Human Right Subject if its Published in Electronic Media You will see similar Result very Soon

Arjumand Azhar Dec 24, 2015 06:12am

My friends I stood up last year against this cancer called VIP Protocol and had to pay a price. I am ready to continue the fight if the new generation of Pakistan is eady to support me. Arjumand

AdHawk Dec 24, 2015 06:16am

In a civilized country this would be an issue.

Justice Dec 24, 2015 06:43am

I have news for all of you.This is not the last time somebody has died due to protocol or govt negligence.People will continue to die and therefore don't cry about it ,just wait for your turn to die.

BNS Dec 24, 2015 06:50am

Such a heart breaking incident. My thoughts are with the grieving family.

Before everything it should be inquired "Who authorized providing BBZ the protocol that was provided and on what grounds the same was justified as to my knowledge BBZ does not hold any official position that entitles him the privileges.

Sadaat Dec 24, 2015 07:17am

These shameless political leaders who are oblivious of the people problems.

saz Dec 24, 2015 08:18am

There is serious lack of insight at hospital administration how to deal with emergency patients during visit of politicians or hierarchy while maintaining security checks. They managed security check but failed in providing necessary care in timely fashion. It seems they did not consider and give any worth to sick patients needing urgent care.

If it is impossible to provide medical care and security arrangements then hierarchy should not be invited for inauguration ceremonies.

M M AMIN(. Old Ravian ) Dec 24, 2015 09:53am

Young BBZ already has plenty of political baggage . Now here is this tragic loss of baby . No condolences and cash grants can bring this baby back. When shall we be rid of this vvip Ptotocol? Our professional politicians love to be seen by the crowds as very special ,superior , class , above , " common man " for whom they shed crocodile tears 24/7 .

iamauks Dec 24, 2015 11:19am

@Omar Khan they had not voted for but they surprisingly got their vote in their favor. That's the thing PPP is master in.

shewaram Suthar Dec 24, 2015 11:31am

In Pakistan, list of VIPs are huge, uneducated ministers that living with proper protocol, this is the main responsibility of police, who are the servant of these minsters.

Jaced Dec 24, 2015 11:35am

Bilawal may not even know about implications of VVIP protocol, being new to Pakistan and away from common mans problems. I feel ashamed on comments made by Nisar Khuro. There should be some point where morally one should stop apple polishing and stand for what is right. Mr Khuro will let your Son or Daughter die on road side to serve your master's security protocol? Please don't tell a lie here, just think about it in your heart with honesty, repent your words and ask for forgiveness. May God forgive us all.

MM Dec 24, 2015 11:59am

'Bilawal's security is more important'.... How can one expect these people to serve the masses when they consider themselves to be superior than them

kamran Dec 24, 2015 12:26pm

Pakistanis Still vote & I mean Vote in Mass to feudal s & be it rural area or urban mafia.... Why democracy is not working in Pakistan like other developed countries ? One reasons is poor Justice department & Very poor Constitutional frame works & poor Legislation ; we require democracy but we practice politics in Hiring Judges, police & govt departments ; looks like we require serious constitutional reforms & All the more most important we require more provinces ; their are bout 146 districts including 13 tribal agency & 6 frontier regions > lets make 146 provinces in Pakistan and make internal migration control like permit & voting rights

This Khouro or whatever his name is saying Bilawal security is more important. Seriously? In any civilized country if a public figure gave this kind a statement after this kind a tragedy he would definitely be thrown out and banned for life from any public or political office. But what you can say, it's Pakistan. This country got long way to go before we evolve where we can respect human lives.

Point here is that its the people that vote for such stupids. In most of the Sindh, people vote for either MQM or PPP. And then they cry when incidents like these happen. Same is the case in Punjab. Here people cry when they are stuck in roadways or when theres shortage of equipment in hospitals, etc. Yet the people blindly vote for PML(N). The fault lies not with the government, but the peoples and due to them, this will keep on happening

Shameless stance by the ministers. If the protocol is shutting gates to the hospital for VIPs then they should be banned immediately. But sadly nothing changes, these same people will vote them in again, feel sorry for the kid

very very sad but i believe Pakistan and Pakistanis deserve much more better approach to public medical facilities and of course security to public leader,s prison style life style (poor people they even can,t breath fresh air without srcurity guards)

I hope the same happens to their children ,their children die in their arms while they are running from one place to another ,I shudder when I think of the anguish that the helpless father must have felt when he carried his daughter in his arms,and he turned away due to protocol ,and they have no shame

Bilawal,s security is more important . says Education minister. Does it include your own relatives? I hope people Sindh will remember this.

Muhammad Farooq Dec 24, 2015 06:51pm

what kind of security measure is this that disallows carrying a sick child to the emergency ward of the hospital? very shameful really!!!

Nazir Ahmed Dec 24, 2015 06:51pm

Inauspicious people always cause suffering to Pakistan & its people. Rangers! Please take action by restricting movements of these golden people.

Nazir Ahmed Dec 24, 2015 07:56pm

There must be a suo moto action by the court against these stone hearted V.I.Ps. There comments show that they have no mercy for common people. It is their legacy which took them to tragic death.

Makes me wonder how these politicians can sleep at night? Either they have no conscience or it must haunt them every minute of the day!

@HKB This Trauma Centre has not been build with Bilawal Zardari's personal fund. It has been build with tax payer's money.

Rajab Brohi Dec 25, 2015 01:00am

after apologize from Bilawal Bhutto You all dictatorship lover need to stop your comments

Dom Dec 25, 2015 08:06am

This is not shocking..the only thing we can do pray God and hope it does not happen again.

Unfortunately nothing is going to change between the haves and have nots. This is very much true in countries like India and Pakistan. I am an Indian, I could see this VIP culture everyday and in every place in India as well.

A complete systemic change is required where every human life is treated equal.

May God bless every kid in the world (syrians, africans, asians, whites, blacks, Hindus, muslims, christians) happiness and joy.

Ayesha Dec 25, 2015 01:23pm

Shame on those, who have gifted us these political leaders and who let Zardari to be president of the country and those who provide protocol to these useless vultures.

SD IND Dec 25, 2015 03:47pm
